What vehicles have you owned? Could one of them transport you to a new piece of creative writing?

Set the timer for three minutes and list all the vehicles you have owned – from your first tricycle or scooter.

Pick one of them. Set the timer for five minutes and do a ‘free write’ about it.  

Use the remainder of the time to either craft this into a poem or 150-word flash fiction story. Alternatively, create the first few paragraphs of a longer story.
